Modeling Categorization Dynamics through Conversation by Constructive Approach
Categorization dynamics as the clustering of words in word relation is studied by a constructive approach which is suited to inquire evolutionary linguistics with dynamical view on language. Word meaning is represented by relationship among words. Tthe relationship should be derived from usage of language. Being founded on this usage-based view, we define an algorithm to evaluate word relationship. Using the algorithm, cluster structure and its dynamics of words are shown in a model with communicating artificial agents. The relevance of clustering with linguistic categorization is discussed. 1 Dynamical View on Language There are two ways of viewing language: structurally and dynamically. The structural view is a static one in which language structure, for example, syntax, dictionaries, or pragmatic rules, offers idealized approaches to language. The alternative view is dynamic. It concentrates on the actual use of language han abstract notions of how language ought to be. It is pos...
